PLAY FOR CHANGE
The non profit basketball organization, The Shooting Touch, is planning its 1st Annual Play for Change 24 hour basketball marathon to benefit its Sabbatical program. The event will be held March 17 and 18 from 5pm Saturday to 5pm Sunday at Lasell College in Newton, Massachusetts. Teams may sign up for a two hour period, which will include drills and games, watching the March Madness games, and two different time periods throughout the 24 hours to try and break Guinness World Records. Each teams goal is to try and fundraise money, which will go towards the Sabbatical Program. The more money the team fundraises, teams may get a free t-shirt, John Wall Reebok basketball sneakers and the team that fundraises the most money wins the Reebok Luxury Box to a Celtics game! All ages from middle school and up are welcome to play. Individuals who would like to play and cannot make a team are more than welcome to come join by either fundraising alone or paying $5 that will go towards the Sabbatical.
The Shooting Touch is a non profit Boston based basketball organization that uses the sport of basketball to positively impact the lives of children both on and off the court. The Sabbatical Program was created three years ago to give college seniors a chance of a lifetime. Known as "The Basketball Peace Corps," the Sabbatical Program grants college seniors the opportunity to travel the world and partake in a 10 month international work program using the platform of basketball to help foster education and influence positive social change in third world communities. Each grantee will be provided with a stipend of $25,000 to fund the entire journey.
